On October 13, 2015 we brought our monthly supply of healthy food supplements to the Loc Tho Charity School and Orphanage. This was provided by the continued support of Lloyd and Esther, who have provided ongoing nourishment to the students.
Loc Tho provides free primary schooling to poor youngsters in the neighborhood, in addition to caring for a small group of orphans at the pagoda. The school survives through donations, and provides vital schooling to children whose families struggle to pay the costs of sending their children to public school. Loc Tho also gives the students free breakfast and lunch, and these regular contributions ensure that the children’s meals are healthy.
Our lead coordinator Loan, also brought the children a special treat of breakfast rolls, which was a delight they rarely get to experience.
